RADNOR, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Lincoln Financial Group (NYSE:LNC) today announced the opening of its new location in Atlanta, Ga., at RiverEdge Summit in Sandy Springs. This office will principally house employees working for the firm’s Group Protection business, which provides nonmedical insurance coverages, such as disability, life, dental, vision, critical illness and accident insurance, to employees through the workplace. The expanded facilities in Atlanta will accommodate growth and enable enhanced service capabilities.

Lincoln Financial first announced plans for the new space in August 2015. Currently, there are nearly 2,000 employees total in the Group Protection business, about 200 of which are in Atlanta. That number is expected to grow substantially over the next three to five years. Existing staff in Atlanta have relocated to the new building.

“We are thrilled to establish a major presence in Atlanta, one that will further enhance the solutions and services we provide to our customers,” said Dennis Glass, president and CEO of Lincoln Financial Group. “We have been a member of the community for over a decade now. Opening a larger office is the culmination of our growth in the Atlanta area, as well as the strategic investments we have made in our businesses and, in particular, Group Protection.”

By providing and supporting important financial products, Lincoln Financial’s Group Protection employees are making an impact in customers’ lives on a daily basis—whether it’s bringing financial stability to individuals and families during an accident, injury or loss of a loved one; or assisting with day-to-day vision and dental health needs.

“Our focus on serving our customers efficiently and effectively has always been at the forefront for us, and as we grow, adding staff to ensure excellent service becomes increasingly important,” said Dick Mucci, president of Group Protection. “Atlanta will be home to employees across multiple functions of our business, and new positions will include sales, account management, claims, actuarial services, underwriting, customer service, and more. To fill those roles, we’ll certainly look to tap into the diverse talent pool the area has to offer.”
